DURABILITY- at rays mtb park fox 831s and Argyle RCTs were breaking all the time and these were always the replacements.
Responsive- this fork is the definition of plush. it is a snap to adjust and you can dial it in soooooooo perfectly
Stiff- in the suspension and in the axle. manitou has outdone themselves with the 20mm hex lock
Light- for a tank like this its feather weight
AFFORDABLE- looking to pay less AND perform more? well i wouldnt reccomend dropping $800-$900 on an Argyle or 831
if your into 4x the weight might take front seat but durability will pay off
This fork is a light, stiff, plush versatile tank. IT is sooo beefy compared to the competition. This thing is a tank and an 831 is a go cart. Seriously. The suspension it so responsive and smooth and manitou created a lock out that can take hits without being destroyed unlike rock shocks lock out. PERFECT
